Hi,

I am trying to run the SMSDemo example bundled with WTK21. I am able to send the SMS message. When I send the message I can receive it on my WMA console. But when I try to receive message on Emulator (sent from WMA console) - I keep getting "Waiting for SMS on port 50000". I sent many messages from WMA console but it cannot receive them. No errors or exceptions received.

I also tried the example at http://www.corej2me.com/DeveloperResources/IBM/pushtechnology.pdf. This also did not work. It keeps waiting for the message. Again No errors or exceptions received.

What am I missing? Any help appreciated.

Thanks a lot,
Rashmi

Maybe it would help if you disable your firewall, if you have any.

Thank you for your reply. I figured the problem, but I don't understand this.
To get SMS Demo working, I had to first do an SMS send (from the emulator) before I can SMS receive messages on the emulator.
The same thing applies for this tutorial https://www6.software.ibm.com/developerworks/education/wi-midpreg/index.html
I don't know why. If you do kindly let me know.

Thanks,
Rashmi
